An IoT solution for visitors to remote locations
The Scottish Government’s CivTech programme has been established to drive daring and innovation in the public sector; harnessing the power of digital innovation to create new products that improve services, cut costs, and make user experiences better. Joe Tree, Head of Product will introduce CivTech and provide an update on opportunities to get involved in the next project round, CivTech 4.0.
Responding to a challenge in the CivTech 2.0 programme from Historic Environment Scotland to collect meaningful data from its 250+ remote historic sites, Replicade developed RAMSense – a compact, rugged, low-power IoT sensor platform designed for outdoor applications. Its first product transmits real-time visitor counts, environmental information and telemetry to a cloud-based infrastructure. RAMSense uses self-monitoring, sophisticated power management and energy harvesting to minimise ongoing maintenance costs.
To support more rural uses, Replicade is currently working with CENSIS to integrate emerging low-power network technologies into the company’s offering, including LPWAN/LoRaWAN.
